Actually Molecular Dynamics phosphorimagers do not detect chemiluminescence.
However, they can be used for chemifluorescence-- check out
http://www.mdyn.com/application_notes/apunderf/APUNDERF.HTM for more
information. The link discusses where you can get the appropriate
substrate(s) for chemifluorescence (sold by Amersham Pharmacia, of course).

Good luck,
